2 Fall Evaluation Educator Update Agenda 1.RI Model Improvements 2.Support Professionals Overview 3. Questions
3 Strategic Improvements RI Model for Teachers 2013-2014 Feedback from educators across the state was incorporated into the strategic improvements. An addendum has been released to provide additional guidance to teachers related to the RI Model for Teachers. The only section of your guidebook the addendum is designed to replace is the Measures of Student Learning section. RIDE has produced a series of online modules for all educators that are easily accessible through their website.

8 SLOs vs. SOOs for Teachers Most teachers will continue to write SLOs. Some select special educators may write a Student Outcome Objective in lieu of one or both SLOs. A decision tree (p. 22) has been provided to help evaluators and teachers determine whether or not they qualify to write SOOs in lieu of SLOs.

11 Fall Evaluation Educator Update Agenda 1.RI Model Improvements & Learning Opportunities 2.Support Professionals Overview 3. Questions
12 RI Model for Support Professionals During the 2013-2014 school year, support professionals will be participating in gradual implementation of the RI Model for Support Professionals What is Gradual Implementation? Gradual Implementation creates an opportunity for support professionals, evaluators, and school/district leaders to learn about the model in order to prepare for full implementation during the 2014-2015 school year. Gradual implementation includes a reduced number of requirements of the RI Model for Support Professionals. Final Effectiveness Ratings will not be counted for certification purposes during the 2013-2014 school year.
13 Components of the Support Professionals Model Evaluation Conferences Provide both the support professional and evaluator an opportunity to discuss aspects of his or her evaluation. Professional Growth Plan Support professionals will create a Professional Growth Plan with one concrete goal to focus professional development on for the year. Student Outcome Objective/Student Learning Objective Long-term academic goals set for the interval of instruction or service delivery (quarter, semester, school year, etc.) Some support professionals will create SLOs and some will create SLOs. (see decision tree on p. 19 of your guide book for additional information)
14 Components of the Support Professionals Model Assessment of Practice (Professional Practice & Foundations) Both Professional Foundations and Professional Practice are scored holistically according to the rubric at the end of the year (based on evidence collected during the entire school year).
16 Assessing Professional Practice and Foundations
17 Professional Practice Identical design Not a checklist Designed to encourage conversation and develop a common language of practice Each component is holistically scored on a 4 point scale p. 47
18 Professional Foundations Same components as Building Administrators Not a checklist Each component is holistically scored on a 3 point scale
20 Student Learning Key Similarities Interval of Instruction Both Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) and Student Outcome Objectives (SOOs) can be set for a school year or interval of service/instruction that is appropriate to their assignment. Goals Focused on Student Outcomes Both SOOs and SLOs focus on student outcomes. Online Modules : Understanding SLOs Writing an Objective Statement
21 Student Learning Key Similarities Essential Questions 1.What is the most important knowledge/skill(s) I want my students to attain by the end of the interval of instruction? 2.Where are my students now with respect to the objective? 3.Based on what I know about my students, where do I expect them to be by the end of the interval of instruction and how will they demonstrate their knowledge/skill(s)?
22 Student Learning Key Differences Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) Long-term academic goal set for groups of students. Student Outcome Objectives (SOOs) Long-term goals that are focused on an outcome that increases access to learning or creates conditions that facilitate learning.
